About a month ago I received an e-mail from a woman in Paris named Odile. She was over the moon that someone had used her name in a collection - an old French name - that many people had never even heard before.
Odile wrote: I think I share with you, the love of old children designs. I have at home a very large collection of vintage newspaper , mainly as I am looking for old sewing machines information. And then Odile sent me a flicker link to her favorite children designs that she had scanned from old French newspapers.
To celebrate our new collection, and to inspire you to sew a dress for your favorite little girl, please leave us a comment about a childhood dress memory and we will send out a box of fabric to a couple of lucky winners. Bonne Chance!

Summerland Mercantile - a wonderful workshop, creative garden and atelier just a couple of hours north of Los Angeles - on the outskirts of Santa Barbara. Every year I get to go up for a workshop or two and teach in this outdoor space - it's always a fun afternoon and it's filled with Mogull and Stacey's warm touches. I'm headed up again in a couple of weeks to teach a jewelry workshop - nothing fancy just a bunch of interesting types sitting around and sharing our creativity. If you need a day out or live in the area, sign up for a day to relax and create something beautiful - just in time for Mother's Day! Sign up here!
